Emory Fae enjoys leading a quiet, normal life. That is until two mysterious, and handsome soldiers show up at her apartment, and the life she knew is instantly whisked away. Memphis Carter and Brokk Foster come from the magical and war ridden world of Kiero, and bringing Emory back she will discover she is the long lost heir to the Royal Line and is thrown into the Black Dawn Rebellion with a dynamic role to ignite the rebels and reclaim her throne.
With both men being darkly woven in her past Emory uncovers hidden secrets, a power held long dormant, and will soon realize there are worse things than supernatural humans, love, loss, betrayal, and a Mad King.
Some things are better left in the shadows.

Here is Mallory’s guest post for Wandering Bark Books!
Q: Is the idea of a “rebellion” based on current events at all, or any other time period in history?
I’m happy you asked me this! So, the idea of a rebellion in this series isn’t based on any current events, present or past. In Black Dawn, the rebellion creates the dynamics I needed in this story. In this world, the government created the Academy, a school where people could learn to harness and control their abilities and to use them for good. When this of course falls apart, the ones who create the Rebellion are the survivors from the Academy and what they believed in. The whole idea for this series is the constant challenge between what is right and what is wrong. The fight between good and evil, and all the grey areas in between. I loved the idea of the rebellion, especially as the series continues and their values and what they are fighting for are constantly challenged. History and the monarchy have always fascinated me, so I’m sure that’s why I am writing about the battle between King and Queen, and from this a rebellion was always how I envisioned this story beginning.
